1st Event: Key Earning Reports this week:
2nd Event: China Growth Rate – Tuesday
Stringent COVID-19 restrictions and disruptions brought on by the Ukraine crisis have slowed down the global economy growth. As a result, the Chinese government is not optimistic about the growth rates for 2022. The Q3 2022 growth is also expected to be less than the 4.0% forecasted by analysts in July.
The Chinese government is scheduled to announce the third quarter’s GDP on 17th October.
3rd Event: UK CPI – Wednesday
The UK is currently undergoing an inflation rate and hit a 40-year high in July 2022. It has risen by 9.9% in the past 12 months till August 2022. Even though the average UK salary has increased by 4.7%, the cost of living is surpassing wage growth and putting pressure on households. As a result, many UK households are going through a time of great financial difficulty. Furthermore, this is made worse by a lack of effective political action.
Hence, it waits to be seen if September CPI data will worsen or improve from the earlier months.
4th Event: Existing Home Sales Report – Thursday
As of March 29, 2022, the real house price index has increased by more than 115%. The housing market in the United States grew by 11.2% in January 2022 compared to the same month last year. It is unusual for there to be a double-digit increase. Home prices currently are higher than they were in 2006. And the beginning of a housing bubble could already be underway.
The existing home sales report provides precise and timely information on the health of the housing market in the USA. The monthly changes in home sales and price provides a glimpse of the trends and challenges.
5th Event: Eurozone Consumer Confidence – Friday
This indicator provides an indication of Euro sentiment towards the general economic situation, unemployment and capability of savings. In September, the indicator dropped by 3.8 points to -28.8, the lowest reading since inception in 1985. Hence, this clearly indicates that Europeans feel pessimistic about Europe’s economic outlook in the near future.
